Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The first in a limited edition, Brew Crew Big Beer Series. 1080 OG; 76 IBU

This remarkably balanced brew has a deep amber hue with a generous white head. Hopmouth showcases a rich, toasty flavor and sweet caramel notes because of the high-quality Maris Otter Malt used. The hops are up front in the aroma reminiscent of citrus and pine, while the resin-like flavors linger well after the last sip.

A very dark, brownish copper with a big pillowing white head.

Smells like musty, resinous pine with a hint of citrus.

Tastes like pine, herbal tea, lemon, caramel malt, and some orange. Fairly malty, but very resinous with a solid bitter aftertaste.

Body is sticky and a bit syrupy.

There is something odd about this one, but it is pretty solid.

I don't know....I'm thinking I have a funky bottle of Hop Mouth.....Its not very good and not something I'd expect from Arcadia. The beer poured a deep amber with white head that is leaving a lace. The scent has bitter hop. The taste is very syrupy sweet and just plain weird. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with subtle carbonation. Overall....no thanks....I might try it off the tap....but no more from the bottle for me.

Look: Great rusty reddish-brown color.

Smell: Stuffy attic. It just smells old somehow.

Taste: Tasty bitterness, but also sweet, caramel maltiness that you just can't ignore. Truly a bittersweet beer, but in a good way.

Feel: Has a bit of a sticky resin quality to it. Helps the taste linger.

Overall: Yes, please. But at 8% ABV, pace yourself.

i was very meh on this one, but always with high hopes for arcadia, it was a let down. not sure how fresh it was, purchased in ohio before christmas with no visible bottle date. its an amber colored ipa, with a short lived but erupting white head. deep red color for an ipa, some haze. good nose, simcoe maybe up front, or something similar, i get the woodiness of centennial too, but with quite a bit of oxidation and malt sweetness. not all that awesome. the flavor is surprising, because its not at all like the aroma. more citrus, a lot more, both bitter and acidic, and a whole lot less malt sweetness and body than expected from the nose. its crazy really how different the two are. orange and lemon from the hops cut the malt completely, but there is some oxidation and it tastes a little stale to me. mediocre really for the style, although i can imagine it being a lot better fresh on tap. i feel like every time i have beer from these guys it has the same issues. not sure why that is, but i would love to taste all their stuff fresh. potential here but i didnt much care for it.

The beer comes in a deep darker amber color.

The beer hits of pine, sticky resin, hints of sweet citrus, loads of sweet breadiness, onto a longing drying earthy bitterness. The beer even tastes "old" with only two and a half months on it. (Bottled 10/24/15).

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a great looking clear reddish amber with a white head. The aroma if full of citrus, hops and grass. The taste is full on citrus with some hops. Overall, a great DIPA.

Pours dark Amber. Strong hops, but a weaker dipa. Bitter end. Not shabby
Aug 5/2016 update had again and it had even more bitterness at the finish that was a bit of a turnoff....sour perhaps.
